Marcelino is a heart-warming tale of an orphan boy caught in the midst Mexico’s revolution. The story begins as the friars of a poor war-ravaged monastery find an infant abandoned on their doorstep. Having nowhere to turn in the wake of the war, they decide to raise him in the monastery. The child grows into a rambunctious boy, fond of playing jokes on the friars with his best friend, Eleuterio. Marcelino yearns for a mother as he observes the deep bond Eleuterio shares with his mother.

Marcelino’s curiosity leads him to the attic of the monastery: the one place he was warned never go to. While there, he is drawn to a statue with a face so full of love that he is compelled to visit it often. Marcelino is too young to realize that it is a statue of Jesus. Thinking the statue looks hungry, he sneaks bread and wine into the attic and offers it to the statue. Because of the faith of the child, an unexpected miracle occurs.
